Glen-Forest Tourist Park Tours

Glen-Forest Tourist Park
Just outside Port Lincoln, in South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula, Glen-Forest Tourist Park offers attractions from minigolf and Segway rides to vineyards and wildlife encounters. For most, animals will be the major draw. The park is home to koalas, dingoes, wombats, kangaroos, emus, and more, and many species can be hand-fed.

The Basics
There is a charge to enter Glen-Forest Tourist Park, with additional fees payable for minigolf and Segway rides, plus discounts for families—kids under 2 go free. This family-run park is easy to navigate, and there’s absolutely no need for a guide or a tour. Most travelers drive from Port Lincoln as part of a self-guided tour of the Eyre Peninsula or as a stop on a longer Australian road trip, but it’s also an occasional stop on organized Port Lincoln tours or Eyre Peninsula tours.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Glen Forest Tourist Park is a must for anyone visiting the Eyre Peninsula or Port Lincoln with kids.
  • Snacks and drinks are for sale within the park. There’s also a barbecue, and visitors are welcome to bring and cook lunch, or simply picnic on the lawns.
  • In summer, sunscreen and sun hats are a must.
  • The family that owns the park also runs a vineyard, and tastings are available.
  • Glen-Forest Tourist Park offers reasonable wheelchair access, including an accessible bathroom.

How to Get There
Glen-Forest Tourist Park is located about 11 miles (17 kilometers) northwest of Port Lincoln, in South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula. There is no public transport, so most travelers drive here, although it’s also possible to visit as part of a comprehensive Port Lincoln day tour.

When to Get There
Glen-Forest Tourist Park is open from morning to afternoon, seven days a week, closing only on Christmas Day. At its liveliest on weekends and Australian school holidays, the park is rarely very busy. It’s worth visiting earlier in the day to beat the heat over the South Australian summer (December to February).

Glen-Forest Tourist Park with Kids
A popular choice for Port Lincoln birthday celebrations, Glen Forest Tourist Park offers a wealth of animal encounters. Kids are welcome to pat and cuddle baby farm animals, including rabbits, while children and adults alike can buy animal feed and hand-feed the kangaroos that roam the 120-acre (49-hectare) farm.
